Easy Summer Picnic Recipes

Simple sandwiches served with fruit and veggie kabobs are the perfect ingredients for your summer picnic. Making the sandwiches into wraps helps with transporting and eating the food once you arrive at your picnic spot. Wooden skewers are the perfect tool for creating fruit and vegetable kabobs. Best of all, each skewer can be adapted to the child's taste.

Fruit Kabob Recipe

These kabobs can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap or in an air tight container.

  1. Wash and slice the apples.
  2. Rinse the grapes well.
  3. Wash and slice the oranges.
  4. Alternate slices of apples, oranges, grapes, and any other fruit that you have on wooden skewers. If you don't have skewers, simply place them in a large bowl until ready to serve.
  5. Keep the fruit in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Vegetable Kabob Recipe

Serve these veggie kabobs with a tasty, low fat dip. Ranch and Italian dressings also work well.

  1. Rinse the vegtables and slice into bite size pieces.
  2. Alternate the carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers on the wooden skewers.
  3. Pour you veggie dip or dressing into air tight containers, and store with kabobs in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Turkey and Cheese Wrap Recipe

Using tortillas instead of bread helps keep sandwiches intact for your picnic journey.

  1. Spread out each tortilla on the counter or cookie sheet.
  2. Place on layer of turkey at the end of the tortilla.
  3. Roll the tortilla over the turkey once.
  4. Add a layer of cheese, and roll the tortilla over the cheese.
  5. Repeat the layers, adding the lettuce and tomatoes, rolling after each ingredient is added.
  6. Wrap each filled tortilla in tin foil and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Finally, for some of the most important ingredients for a summer picnic, don't forget the entertainment::
